Muscle Up Guinness World Record


Lee has been delivering workshops throughout Europe since 2012.

Countries include: Ireland, Northern Ireland, Spain, Czech Republic, Germany, Finland.


The workshop run by Lee Wade Turner is is split into two parts, in the morning session, we’ll start with some important warm up drills focusing mainly on the scapula, ways to strengthen and reduce the risk of injuries and provide more stability for your training.


From there we go on to cover basic bodyweight exercises (pull ups, press ups, dips and muscle ups) working on correct technique, ways to improve overall strength and ways to build up your reps. More intense variations of each exercise will be demonstrated and broken down where participants will explore different ways of training with them.


Challenging solo / group workouts will wrap up each instructional segment working with parallettes, parallel bars, rings and high bar.


After a lunch break, the bodyweight movements are taken up a few notches with advanced gymnastic / calisthenics holds and exercises such as ‘front and back lever’, ‘one arm pull ups’ and ‘human flag’ are broken down with demonstrations through all the different progressions needed to be worked on to achieving the full hold.


More modern and updated ‘Street Workout’ variations of these holds that require high levels of strength, control and creativity will be demonstrated on the day in freestyle sets where participants will see and learn more about the popular new form of bodyweight training known as ‘Street Workout’.


The final part of the workshop will incorporate some of the new skills acquired in a fun and challenging core session where the participants will run through some drills and skills on the parallel and high bar.


Afterwards, Lee will be able to answer and questions or concerns that you have regarding the days session.


Workshop designed for 10 – 30 participants


The 2.5 hour workshop is totally dedicated to the ring and bar muscle up – it’s more in-depth look at the exercise than what you would get in the full Calisthenics workshop.


Covering progressions, false grip, strength building exercises, technique etc, each section of the muscle up is broken down by Lee in a way that makes it straight forward to understand.

As part of the workshop Lee will also go into detail about the specific training that he went through before setting the original Guinness World Record of 14 strict consecutive ring muscle ups in 2018.


Afterwards, Lee will be able to answer and questions or concerns that you have regarding the days session.

Calisthenics Classes


The word “Calisthenics” originates from the ancient Greek words “Kallos” / “Beauty” or “Beautiful” (highlighting the aesthetic pleasure that derives from the perfectionof the human body & “Sthenos” / “Strength” (mental & physical strength, determination & courage).


It is the original form of exercise where little or no equipment is used & the athlete will predominantly use their own bodyweight as resistance to build a muscular, lean, strong & flexible physique.


Calisthenics could be considered the specific training that goes into the Olympic sport of “Gymnastics”.


The Calisthenics classes at Kennington Park you’ll learn how to control your own bodyweight with functional basic exercises such as press ups, chin ups, sit ups, dips & squats.


With good positivity & determination you’ll soon notice the difference in your body & mindset & more advanced variations & harder exercises can be reached such as the handstand, human flag & muscle ups – the physical body is capable of achieving some truly amazing feits.


The 1.5 hour small group training sessions will incorporate stretching, mobility, working on gymnastic skills / elements, whole body workouts using gymnastic rings, parallel bars, parallettes for hand balancing & more.


As you become stronger, extra weight can be added in the form of weighted vests, ankle weights, resistance bands or adding weight plates on a dipping belt & performing the same exercises.


The classes are limied to 6 participants for a more “hands on” training experience & designed for all levels, with scaling & progressions that can be implemented on all exercises during the session.


You can now train virtually with Lee and master your own bodyweight from the comfort of your own living room.


Recession Proof Body On-line classes will give you an intense workout moulded on the style of training Lee has pushed himself through over the years.


Focusing on mobility, skills, straight-arm & bent arm strength, you only require the very basic equipment to join.


Equipment needed:


-Pull up bar (door frame or outdoor)

-Selection of resistance bands

-Yoga mat

-Parallettes / press up handles

-Gymnastic rings


Lee can also provide private on-line classes for gyms / CrossFit boxes / universities or colleges looking to add Calisthenics into their weekly training schedule.
